The Association of Illustrators, in partnership with Directory of Illustration, is pleased to announce the new Call for Submissions to the World Illustration Awards 2016.
For four decades, the AOI has presented the most comprehensive and significant awards for illustration in the UK. After an incredibly successful first collaboration, we welcome back our international partner, the US based Directory of Illustration, to build on the success of the inaugural World Illustration Awards, honouring the most inspiring illustration throughout the world.
The awards call for any practising or new talent artist from all over the globe, where they can enter their commissioned or self initiated projects into one of the 8 categories - Advertising, Editorial, Books, Design, Children Books, Self Initiated, Public Realm and Research & Knowledge Communication. You can enter as a 'Single Image Entry' or 'Multiple Image Entry' which allows you up to 5 images.
After, a jury of international industry insiders will cast their votes over all entries and select the best work and category award winners. Winners will gain world-wide publicity for their work and recognition within the industry. Highlights of the shortlist will be featured in a touring exhibition, starting at Somerset House in London, and accompanying publication, which will be distributed to major commissioners. The AOI and Directory of Illustration will promote all shortlisted work to their global network of illustration networks and commissioners.
Deadline for submissions is 8 February 2016.
